Reduce Food Waste - Fruits

Look for creative ways to use ripe fruit so it does not go to waste.  Here are some suggestions
  • Chop and combine those last pieces of fruit into some oatmeal or cold cereal.
  • Add fruit to plain yogurt with a little honey and a splash of vanilla.
  • Blend fruit and yogurt to makes a tasty dressing. 
  • Freeze bananas and berries and use them to make smoothies.
  • Fruit can be baked into cookies or muffins for a sweet treat.
  • Make a fruit salad.
